Question about 2001 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

Sputturing engine two days ago my 2000 expedition started sputturing out of nowhere. When i press the gas to accelerate it shakes like crazy. When i go off the pedal to let it coast it will be fine until i stop at a light or intersection it will jus shake and then when i take off it shakes as it accelerates until i go one speed. I have checked all fluids and the oil was changed about 1500 miles ago. any ideas?

    I have exactly the same problem, my truck is a 99, but I noticed that happened right after the truck went REAL low in oil, the light went ON (pressure) but when that happened I only drove the expedition for 5 blocks or so and then I park it and filled up the engine with fresh oil, the light was on for a second or two, so if it overheated it was for a minimum of time.

    Acording to a mecanic it can be the IGNITION coils that went bad, but he wants the CHECK ENGINE light to come ON, to see which one it is,

    PROBLEM is the light have never come ON, any ideas? please help

    engine light on.
    Gas pedal randomly doesn't do anything - sometimes the RPMS go really high for a sec but car doens't gain speed. Other times hitting the gas pedal does nothing. Shakes likes it choking on something when i try to gain speed.

    Also - i noticed if I am not on the gas pedal and I am coasting the problem happens. Once i get the gas going and keep my foot on the gas its ok. its trying to accelerate

Starts up, can give it gas, but won't accelerate?


Could be. Or the fuel pressure is low, or something is blocking the exhaust or air intake.

Your car is misfiring. You should not drive the vehicle while it is misfiring. If you want to DIY it you can start with you ignition system. Make sure all spark plugs, plug wires, and ignition coils are secure and in good condition.

Sounds like the engine is starving for fuel. You might try changing the fuel filter. It also cold be water in your fuel tank. Try putting some dry gas in the tank.

I have 2000 ford expedition and last few weeks its been making a whistling noise when accelerate, then past few days it's been running rough, idel low and shakes a bit then today check engine ligh


You might check the pulleys that the serpentine belt runs on. Make sure all are free wheeling and not loose or rough or make noise. You would need to remove the belt to check them.

When i press on gas peddle the truck shakes


Is the check engine light on? Could be that the engine is misfiring, or broken motor mount causing the truck to shake when you press the gas pedal.

I have a 2000 ford expedition. Out of the blue it started sputtering and shaking when I accelerate. Vehicle has144,000 miles.


You should be showing the check engine light--take the car to Autozone or other such business and get a free computer scan (they will be happy to sell you any needed parts). The scan should pinpoint any fuel or ignition problems. Good luck!

Sounds like one of the coil over plugs have gone bad. this will cause mis-fire which causes your car to sputter, skip, and shake. It can be changed easily when finding out which one it is. But rather expensive for a simple part $40+ each.
